    Friday there was a noob doing some bench press near by and his friend was spotting him. Guy was doing 110 for 3 sets and by the 3rd set was strugglilng to get the weight up. His buddy who is busy watching surrounding females work out doesnt notices him struggling as the bar ultimately slips out of the dudes hand and falls right on his lower jaw. The force of the weight seperates completely breaks and seperates his jaw and blood is everywhere. Definitely the most disgusting thing I have ever seen.

    Cliffs: 90 lbs wuss drops 110 lbs on jaw while doing bench press, almost completely seperating his lower jaw from his face :barf:

    This douchebag kid i knew back in high school was benching 135 at the gym when I was a junior, screaming at the top of his lungs with no spotter (and refusing a spotter)...dropped it right on his fucking forehead and knocked himself out. HUGE purple stripe of a welt across his face for weeks. One of the funniest things I've ever seen.

    I've seen some one squat 800 pounds and on the way down, both quads tore from his knees and rolled up. I've also witnessed someone tear their bicep while deadlifting. I've also watched a girl, while benching, drop 240 on her chin, blood was everywhere, didn't do too much damage but she had to have 16 stitches and some dental work done. I watched a guy, while benching, break his forearm bone.

    How do quads roll up? Do they curl like a fruit roll-up under the skin or something?

    He was for about 6 months. He recovered and continued to bodybuild but stopped powerlifting. He won't go over 500 pounds on the squat anymore but he'll rep out 500 for 10. He's also an NPC judge. Pur might know him. His name is Randol Deavers.

    Just goes to show that pushing yourself that hard is fucking idiotic unless you've made a life of it.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Please tell me you guys are fucking kidding. Honestly, you guys' egos are that self-inflated?

    I used to squat 385lbs until I realized that there was no fucking point in my lifting that much. THe only thing I was accomplishing was putting a shit load of strain on my ligaments and potentiating injury. Having crazy BROLY strength in the gym is pointless and serves very little purpose in our every day lives.

    I'm all for getting stronger and what not but I'm more a believer of functional strength and not just what you can do a few reps of. When it comes down to it, endurance and stamina is always going to be more important than strength.

    Then what in the fuck is the point?

    Most people hurt themselves by doing stupid shit. If your average Joe squats 600lbs and seriously fucks himself up, I seriously don't get how thats worth it. I am self-reliant in the gym, don't use any straps, gloves, belts, or spotters. Because what the fuck is the point in lifting weight your body can't fully support with great control and form.

    I've been lifting long enough to know that lifting with an ego will get you no where in the long run.

    Everyone has different goals dude. There is nothing wrong with pushing yourself. Those are a few instances that have happened. That's like saying not to drive because you might get into an accident.

    Pushing yourself will not only make your body grow but will also expand your mind. You obviously know little about this.
